The total number of positive COVID-19 cases since March of last year has surpassed the 7,000 mark and four new deaths related to the virus were added today, bringing the total number of related deaths to 126, the Halifax County Health Department reported today.

Despite the report of new related deaths, numbers in all categories measured by the health department show a decrease, including the percentage of positive cases.

“In the past week we have noted a plateau in positive cases,” health Director Bruce Robistow said this afternoon. “I am hopeful that cases will begin to decline, however, on the heels of big events such as football games and festival activities there remains the potential for the spike to continue.”
